Apple releases minor iOS 10.3.1 security update

The rumour is that 10.3.2 may end support for 32 bit devices — specifically the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. This was based on the fact that the first iOS 10.3.2 developer beta doesn’t appear to be available for those models at this point.
This doesn’t appear to be the case for 10.3.1, which is by all estimations a minor update that was already in the pipeline when Apple released the 10.3.2 beta.
The discontinuation of 32-bit apps might come with iOS 11, but that’s mostly speculation with no firm evidence beyond a warning that comes up in iOS 10.3 for 32-bit apps stating that they “will not work with future versions of iOS.” Of course, since iOS 10.3.1 and iOS 10.3.2 are both “future versions of iOS” that could include iOS 10.3.2, or it may be iOS 11, or it could just be Apple paving the way so that there are no surprised when they eventually do pull the plug.

Apple releases minor iOS 10.3.1 security update

Thanks for sharing such an informative post.I saw an article saying that 10.3.1 will remove support for 32 bit apps. Are 32 bit apps working in 10.3.1? I may be forced to upgrade to an iPhone 7 now just so I can remain on 10.3.0.

Unboxing the new 9.7-inch iPad

As we noted, it’s a “quick first look.” We’ve traditionally done this for just about every new Apple product as soon as we receive them, as with battery and performance testing it takes a couple of days to get a proper review done.

Well that’s crap! I have a perfectly good phone that works great and now I won’t be getting updates! I’ll ride this phone till everything stops working.

Apple releases iOS 10.3 with Find My AirPods, Siri + CarPlay improvements

Biggest change most won’t notice is the move to APFS (Apple File System), which is quite significant IMO. Anyway my 7 plus updated no problem (also love the addition of night shift to MacOS Sierra).

Report confirms legitimacy of at least some of the stolen iCloud credentials being held for ransom

It’s pretty clear there has been no new breach.

Apple confirms iCloud and Apple ID systems have not been breached in response to hacker threat

Yup, likewise. Of course, as with most “hacks” like this, there are still a lot of people who are vulnerable due to poor security practices. I definitely know people who reuse passwords and haven’t changed them in a decade, so this at least makes for an opportunity to hopefully inspire those folks to start exercising more responsible security practices — hopefully not the hard way.

Not sure if anyone took this particular threat seriously. I’ve had 2FA on for awhile anyway…

Apple unveils new upgraded entry-level 9.7" iPad, replacing iPad Air 2

Thanks for catching that. We actually did notice the 128GB model as well, but somehow in the midst of all of the updates today, it got missed somewhere along the way.
You actually can see the prices if you go into the “Models and Pricing” section on the main iPad page. You won’t be able to place an order yet, but the prices are all there. The 128GB model starts at $429 for Wi-Fi only, with the Wi-Fi + Cellular versions at $130 for both models, pretty much as before.

The website also lists a 128 GB model, but since they aren’t on sale yet, you can’t see the price.

More than 180,000 apps could be rendered useless if iOS 11 dumps 32-bit support

On my iPhone I have at least a dozen apps that I use at least weekly, and some daily, that pop up the warning message at some strange interval that I have not been able to nail down.  If they can’t work with iOS 11, that is going to be a royal pain. I haven’t found anything that performs their functions as well or preferably better.

There’s some apps that have been flagged by this that while not updated are still highly useful.  I’ll be annoyed if they globally cut them off.

Siri leads voice assistants in language support

Siri is Nuance, the crappy voice recognition that you love to hate when you call the airlines, banks, etc.

Great…so even more people worldwide can be frustrated with Siri’s ineptness at understanding common phrases and commands.

Apple ends support for second-generation Apple TV

“The Flashlight That Won The Best 2016” is a SCAM!!!!
I have went on their website where it was advertised the flash light is on discount @ USD19.95! After I have entered my credit card details and pressed next it diverted me to a page requiring me to pick option parts for the flash light, without an choice of not taking this option parts. So I closed the browser.
Next you know I received 2 confirmation email from them. 1 claiming I have made the purchase and was charged USD 59.9 where the flash light cost USD39.9 intead of USD19.9 as listed on the page. The next email confirmation is more absurd, it claimed that I have joined a monthly subscription USD 8.95 per month to a discount campaign! This is a SCAM from the beginning! Strongly advise people to stay away from it!
I have emailed their customer service email but no one ever replied back to me! After 2 weeks, the product arrived, the packaging looks flimsy, the torch isn’t even working! Save your money and stay the F away from this site!

iDevices adds dynamic automation, enhanced scheduling to 'Connected' app for HomeKit

It’s definitely one of the better HomeKit apps out there, and one of the few that has a pretty good Apple Watch app.
That said, there’s definitely a personal preference issue, and it probably depends on your set up. I use Apple’s Home app for all of my day-to-day use, since I like the layout with the summary screen, along with the Control Center integration, and then go with Elgato’s Eve app for configuring more advanced rules and triggers — Elgato’s seems to be one of the few that can take advantage of all of the advanced HomeKit automation features, and even iDevices isn’t quite there yet. Of course, the beauty of HomeKit is that you can mix and match apps and use whichever collection of apps works best for your situation…. Until Apple’s Home app came along, I kept the iDevices app around just for Apple Watch support.
That said, I also still use ecobee’s app for most of my thermostat control, as ecobee and HomeKit still have a glaring limitation in that temperature changes made through HomeKit — using Siri or any HomeKit app — will be permanent and won’t respect the ecobee schedules, which I do rely on since many of ecobee’s energy saving features only really work if you’re using ecobee’s schedules — for example, the ecobee3 will avoid running your furnace at 10:55pm if you’ve scheduled a lower temperature to kick in at 11pm, since it knows there’s no point. On the other hand, this doesn’t happen with HomeKit schedules as ecobee has no way of knowing what’s coming up next.
